July 28,1S76-In an article written by T.M . Weaver tc be read at a celebration 
at Poseyville. It consists of almost two pages and I have taken only the parts 
containing the names of the early settlers and places. 

The first tv.o settlers in Robb Township were Joshua Overton who settled on what 
#5 how the Garrison Jaquess Farm and Joseph Montgomery on the A.C.°acuess farm. 
DOth cane about 1808. (This is the same as Goodspeed's History but isn't quite 
correct they were the first two in the immediate area of Poseyville not Robb 
township) About 1812 the following came Nathan Leavi tt, J ames Murphy, John Gwaltney 
Ezekiel Xight, Jesse Cox and Legrove Bennett. In 1815 a group of 46 Kentuckians 
came of whom only 15 are still alive in 1876. (This was the Casey, Endicott/aquess, 
Eaton, and Ferguson settlement). 

These came at a later date around 1613-John Oglesby, Christopher Ashwcr th, James 
I our try, El lis on Cale, Thomas Berrett, John Schradsr, James Ilesbi t,William Reeves 
and James Weaver. 

Zebru.a Foote surveyed the land in 1805 he stayed at the house of Walter Montgomc-: 
ry in April 29,1806 and was drowned the following day. l.aior James Smith later 
did some surveying. Br. Enoch Jones was the first doctor at Cynthiana . First 
doctor in the county was D r . Smith a Rappite doctor. 

The first mills in this area were Warricks on the Cutt-Qff on the Y.abash, Creeks 
on Black River, one at Patoka and Heegley's mill on Fegeon Creek at Evans ville. 
lost of the early grinding was done by horse power en stumps. Br. Church had 
one where the M.E. Church stood in 1B75. These also had stump mills-James Murphy 
Joseph Robinson, Joseph Was son, Willi am Rodgers and Thomas Alcorn. 

Col. William Casey represented the settlement in govern ormental affairs serving
